The Neva Flows, a new wind blows
And soon it will be spring

We hear you, comrades! The revolution hears you! 
Together, we will forge a new Russia that will be the envy of all the world!
The Tsar's St. Petersburg is now the people's Leningrad!

They can call it Leningrad, but it will always be Petersburg
New name, same empty stomachs

They tell us times are better
Well, I say they're not
Can't cook an empty promise
In an empty pot
"A brighter day is dawning! It's almost at hand!"
The skies are gray, the walls have ears
And he who argues disappears!

Hail our brave new land

St. Petersburg is booming
A city on the rise
It's really very friendly
If you don't mind spies!

We stand behind our leaders
And stand in line for bread
We're good and loyal comrades, and our favorite color's red!

Now everyone is equal
Professors push the brooms

Two-dozen total strangers live in two small rooms
You hold a revolution, and here's the price you pay
Thank goodness for the gossip

Спасибо за слухи!

Thank goodness for the gossip
That gets us through the day

Have you heard?
There's a rumor in St. Petersburg
Have you heard
What they're saying on the street?

Although the Tsar did not survive
One daughter may be still alive
The Princess Anastasia
But please do not repeat!

It's a rumor, a legend, a mystery
Something whispered in an alleyway
Or through a crack
It's a rumor that's part of our history

They say her royal grandmama will pay a royal sum
To someone who can bring the Princess back

Dmitry! They've closed another border
We should've gotten out of Russia while we still could!

St. Petersburg was lovely when royalty was in
I called myself a count as though I'd always been
I hobnobbed with the royals, but then a change of luck
The Tsar was dead, the royals fled
And, comrade, now we're stuck!

Vlad! I've been thinking about the Princess Anastasia
Oh, not you too, Dmitry!

It's the rumor, the legend, the mystery
It's the Princess Anastasia who will help us fly
You and I, friend, will go down in history

We'll find a girl to play the part and teach her what to say
Dress her up and take her to Paris
Imagine the reward her dear old grandmama would pay
Who else could pull it off but you and me?


It was a truck backfiring, comrade
That's all it was
Those days are over, neighbor against neighbor
There's nothing to be afraid of anymore
You're shaking
There's a tea shop just steps from here, let me-
Thank you
What's your hurry?
I can't lose this job
They're not easy to come by
But thank you
I'm here every day!

A ruble for this painting
It's Romanov, I swear!
Count Yusupov's pajamas, comrade
Buy the pair!

I found this in a palace
Initialed with an A
It could be Anastasia's!
Now what will someone pay?

We need something of hers to show the old lady
How much is that music box?
Ah, the music box! It's genuine Romanov, I could never part with it!
Two cans of beans, comrade?
Do you believe in fairytales, Vlad?
Once upon a time, I did
We're going to create a fairytale the whole world will believe!

Now it's risky, but not more than usual
We'll need papers, we'll need tickets, we'll need nerves of steel
Yes, it's risky, a lot more than usual
We'll try to cross the border with our princess and our plot
Hopefully disaster won't ensue
With luck, it'll all go smoothly
And with luck, we won't be shot
Who else could pull it off but me and you?

We'll be rich!
We'll be rich!
We'll be out!
We'll be out!
And St. Petersburg will have some more to talk about!

I heard it from a person who
Assured me it was absolutely true

Have you heard?
There's a rumor in St. Petersburg
Have your heard?
Comrade, what do you suppose?

A fascinating mystery
The biggest con in history!
The princess Anastasia
Alive or dead
Who knows?
